Hello - I had an 8cm endometriosis removed along with my left ovary through laparotomy (vertical incision) at the beginning of January. It was my first surgery too, and while I was nervous about it, I must say having that monster out of my body was worth it. I was in the hospital overnight, went home the next day and was in quite a lot of pain during the first week...it took a lot of coaxing from my mom to get me to stand and walk, but everyday was significantly better than the one before.
(Did no good) The uroligist checked me out and said it was from the hernia repair surgery, more pain meds. I don't want no more pain meds - Just fix me!!!! The PAIN is bad, a dull pain on the right side in between my testicles and leg, bad pushing pain when I deficate and inscruciating pain in my testicles. I don't know where to go or what to do!!!!!
Hi. I think the question of recovery from the surgery is best answered by the doctor who is treating you, since he can actually examine you and tell you what else you need to do to hasten your recovery. In general, the speed of recovery would depend on how strong the patient's body is prior to the surgery, and the presence of any other chronic illnesses (e.g. heart disease, diabetes, COPD) which may hamper full recovery.
Hello - I recently had an open inguinal hernia repair on 11/19. They did not use mesh because my tissue was so healthy, so it was repaired strictly with sutures. I'm going on my third week and feeling almost back to normal: I run a dog sitting/training business and am back to regularly walking and working with dogs (the ones that don't jump :). Yesterday I was walking two dogs down a hallway and they pulled after a cat.
Started noticing another lump forming about a month after surgery and by 2 months after surgery the seroma had pushed through completely into my inguinal area - looked as though the hernia was back. Had 2 ultrasounds, 1 cat scan and 3 drainages done... Each time it was drained they got more and more out, however it has never completely gone away. Surgeon suggests that we should do another surgery :( Just interested to know if any of your symptoms improved with time?
What if you have had hernia surgery already? Can you do situps then? I had hernia surgery Jan 23 2009 and now I have mesh around my whole abdomen.
The presence of a hernia after endoscopic surgery is a known side effect. Walking after surgery is an important aspect of recovery and to prevent deep vein thrombosis. Ashutosh (Ash) K. Tewari, MD www.cornellroboticprostate.org This forum is for information only.
I'm trying to determine if it's high or low in the groin area. I've had inguinal hernia surgery performed twice and on both sides with mesh installed on my right. I'd say that the surgical sites are up high, but I don't want the mesh to be disturbed.
I had complications rsulting in open surgery in May of 1997 (the wrap had slipped up into my chest and an accompanying paraesophegeal hernia resulted. I am currently having problems again ... but surgeons are unable to diagnose since symptoms and anatomy do not seem to correlate. The procedure solved my reflux. I needed it and would make the same choice again, but I am having problems yet unsolved as a result.
Since the surgery all the pain that I had been having over the years is gone. The surgery was painfull for the first few days but the recovery went by quick. Now I still feel a little week but I am ok and for the first time pain free. It turns out my gallbladder was filled with stones and not working. How could the doctors mis diagnose me for that long. Over the years I must have taken a million antacids or thought I was having a heart attack a hundred times.
The head pain yes............the surgery no..
I had the surgery and the recovery was very long and hard. I was 19 at the time. I am 22 now and live in constant pain. After everything with my accident I had been on pain killers so long that I have at this point discontinued them. I feel that they are too easy to become dependant upon and that I cannot function as well mentally with the narcotic fog over me. That said I'm on flexoral and naproxin for inflammation and muscle relaxation.
my doctor called me and insisted i get a high contrast cat scan immediately and scheduled it. Now....did they screw up my surgery and aren't trying to tell me? I know something is wrong. I can't do anything anymore....i have no air to breathe. They are saying i now have an elevated diaphram which i never had before.... and there is a pocket in my esophagus that the bariujm showed...cause i saw that myself. What would YOU do? What should I do? What questions should I ask.

Hi Tramadol Warriors! Welcome to Part 17! Make yourself at home!
This past April I Had a chest xray, Cat scans, mammo and also a breast MRI. Thank God all was fine. Believe me, you are not alone with the way you feel. I'm sure everything will be fine with you and I'll keep you in my prayers. We have to keep in mind that all these tests will catch something early enough to be treated successfully.I'll be thinking of your sister also. Sorry but I don't know too much about cervical cancer.
Recently I finally got some answers as to why I have been having so many problems with constipation,pain, etc. Through a CAT scan and upper G.I.it has been revealed that I have an Internal Hernia and that about two feet (they are not sure about this) of my small intestine is located (in a loop )up behind my stomach. The Drs.here in Little Rock tell me they have never seen this situation before. I am schedule to have surgery this month...
From what I've always heard and continue to hear it takes your body a FULL YEAR to get over/recovery 100 % after any major surgery. I've read and heard the bloating/swelling part you get after a hysterectomy can last up to 1 year too. I wake up and am one size and by night I'm bigger all over from the swelly belly type thing. I'm just at my 5 weeks of recovering and no where near putting on regular clothes.
Hi Niki I am only about 3 1/2 months post op so I can't really tell you but I am curious about this also as I have heard from different ppl that symptoms seem to come back around the 5 year mark. For me, many of them didn't even go away but the ones that did have stayed away for now. I'm really sorry to hear that you feel they are coming back...after 3 surgeries you deserve a lifetime of relief!! I wonder if it would be good idea to contact your NS and get it checked out?
I just got mine done on 2/5 and I will say this the initial recovery form surgery was a lot better than the framinotomy, but I haven't seen any improvement. So that is a big fat dagger........... in the neck. I would say go for the Framinotomy first, the initial recovery will suck more, but you won't have a peice of steel in your neck, no matter how miraculous people say the prestige or whatever that thing is.
so on tuesday i will be going in for gallbladder surgery. i wasnt really nervous when i found out because im ready to feel better. but all the stories online about this surgery are HORROR stories. FREAKS ME OUT! making me so depressed.....im so young why is all this crap happening to me??....hopefully this gallbladder is connected to the dizziness i been feeling, that would be nice i been praying, but think i could use just a few more if at all possible. im sure i will be a wreck tomorrow.....
Welcome Tramadol Warriors! Fred wrtes, "I stick with it because I remember how the T-train caused INCREASED pain all over my body, in places I never imagined I could have pain. I stick with it because I can remember what it was like to be in the FOG of TRAM, to walk into a room, and forget why I was there, I stick with it because I would rather not get killed on my motorcycle from being too fogged to care what I was doing.
I am really sorry to hear that you are in so much of pain after back surgery. Back surgery can result in a lot of pain which is often referred to as Failed back surgery syndrome. Technically speaking, if the pain persists even after 3 months of surgery, the surgery is considered to be a failure. It is pertinent that you undergo a CT scan to find out the exact cause of pain.
Although we have all heard of people who will find a doctor willing to do surgery on them even though they do no qualify for the surgery. And lastly, she was indeed condesending by telling me and others that need to lose a lot of weight that all we need to do to lose is to try harder. And that these weight loss surgery's should only be reserved for those who have a life threatening condition(s) due to the obesity. Oh, and the kicker, I need to be honest with myself.
[12] Though dystocia can sometimes be treated medically, allowing natural delivery to proceed, the majority of dogs and cats with dystocia require surgical treatment.[10-13] Most females recovery fully from c-sections, though the risks of such surgery are likely greater than those of a planned spay surgery due to the emergency nature of the procedure and the often compromised health of the female due to the dystocia.
I ran a full course of antibiotic Keflex and now 2 weeks after surgery it is still a hard knot. This coincerns me. anyone having this? What is under there and how long does this go on? Other 3 incision sites look excellent.
I've got eight heart stents and a pacer, but haven't gone through an open heart surgery yet, but I'm a volunteer in an intensive care ward of a CVCU, so I know what you went through from my volunteer work. Fundoplication is an easy surgery, but a difficult recovery with digestive issues. Nice work with the Caracal.
I also wanted her to be sure that this is the problem. What's the recovery time on this kind of surgery? I will google it and check it out..i really appreciate your help.
I'd like to ask a question that's been worrying me, and at the very end, I've included an update on my recovery from an ovarian cyst removal via laparotomy, re-opening the sutures due to a complication, and my new best pal, the KCI Wound Vac! Has anyone gone through an incisional hernia from a laparotomy? If a small one forms, does it progress fairly rapidly to a full-blown one with a noticeable bulge produced? Or can small, visibly undetectable ones maybe go away on their own?
In September, I underwent umbilical hernia repair surgery. In the recovery room, during extubation, my airway collapsed and I spent 24 hours in ICU. Approximately three months later, my left hand and arm swelled enormously. A trip to the ER and IV steriods, antibiotics and Zantac started bringing the swelling down (hand and arm returned to normal after a day or so). Two weeks later, I was taken to ER (by ambulance) when my airway swelled shut.
